Split-Second Decisions While Carrying = Consequences

September 2009 - Crime: Aggrevated Assault
Kennebunkport, Maine - CCW permit holder, Paul Moshimer, had everything going for him. He had just gotten a promotion in October and was engaged to be married. As a fire fighter of long standing he should have known that split second decisions have consequences.

Moshimer decided to take his loaded gun with him when he went riding on his motorcycle. This was a bad decision because his permit had expired. Then he decided to stop at a house where he saw his fiance's car parked. This was a bad decision because Moshimer got into an altercation with the homeowner where he used his helmet to beat the man about the face causing serious enough damage that the man will need reconstructive surgery.

Moshimer's fiance has taken out a restraining order against him.

His split second decisions cost his victim serious medical consequences and Paul Moshimer his job, his future marriage and his freedom.
